End Times?

What is the world coming to?
Am I the only one who isn’t asleep? Am I the only one that is fully aware of the cataclysmic events taking place on our planet? Am I the only one who CARES? I’m not just referring to Global Warming here, I’m referring to the demise of living breathing human beings.

Is everyone running around with the "me, me, me" mindset? Me first, My turn, mine, mine, MINE! Are we blind to all of the catastrophe’s taking place around us? Are you not even raising one eyebrow as earthquakes erupt in Indianapolis, Illinois? In Nevada? I’ve found a site that list all the recent activity in the past 8-30 days, why not take a look and see if it frightens you any. (title link)

On April 21, 2008 a 4.0 earthquake hit Illinois. Off the coast of Oregon has been hit with NUMEROUS seismic activities, (too many to list here.) 4-22-08 Utah and Nevada. 4-23-08 Colorado.

Does this not make you think that something a little bit bigger than ourselves is at work here? So what do we do? Do we continue in our selfish ways? Watch as wildfires burn thousands of acres of land? Sit idle while tornadoes sweep across our homes with a vengeance? Observe the earth being swallowed up with scorching heat in some places and a deluge of rain in others? Survey the land as if it isn’t happening in our back yard so, "Why worry?"

You need to worry people! You need to wake up and start changing things for the better. Take note of the ever-changing world. Dig deep and defend your life with honor and respect. Give back to kindness to abolish the hate. Wipe greed and lust off the face of the earth. Take stock in pure love and relinquish selfishness. Only, and I DO MEAN ONLY then, will YOU have a chance for survival in what is to befall the human race.

Is it so hard to love instead of hate? To embrace instead of wage war? To respect instead of resent?

Maybe for YOU it is, but not for me.

Worrying accomplishes nothing. Consider the problems, plan for them, and don't worry about it.

"Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day [is] the evil thereof." Matthew 6:34

The problems of the world is surely at such a cataclysmic proportion as to cause a deluge of panic but the truth is that we can't accomplish much from worry or panic. We can affect one person at a time like you did me and make the world bearable.

Thank you for everything, dear friend.

My dear Joni,

I completely agree with you. I believe you're doing great writing about it. People need to see by themselves, though. They need to be in the middle of a tornado to see it's true and it can happen to them also, not only to the neighbor.
